    It must be hard to distinguish between a red sphere racing towards you and a part of your body attached to your leg!

    June 99 - Cricket Nets, top edged medium pacer playing a hook shot, straight into front tooth. Still haven't found my tooth.

    Nov 00 - Cross Country, collided with someone, fell, landed on left elbow. Breakage. Complete rest of course. Arm in cast all through GCSE Mocks (good thing it was my left!)

    Yes. God forbid that you should be forced to miss an exam. :P

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Have you looked behind the fridge? (obscure Red Dwarf reference).

    Alternatively, ask Killer Harbhajan - he's in the business of knocking teeth out (even more obscure World Cup 2003 DD story)

    Weren't you running backwards at the time? Seem to remember finding it quite funny after everything was ok again......

    I have a list to long to make now but broke nose x3, fingers x2.
    One of the nose one's was when I slipped over playing rugby and while my face was heading towards ground at a rate of knots, someone's knee was on a collision course at sound of sound and me face collided with it. Was gushing for 20 mins, then bleeding for 90 mins. Gives interesting feeling of light headedness, bit like a few beers.

    Wasn't that the India vs Holland match, where the Dutch batsman went for a sweep but on managed a top edge into his face.... and a bit of blood went everywhere?

    Breadcrumb moment - Harbhajan Singh (India) and Edgar Schiferli (Netherlands)

    "Hey, Charlie. Give him de throat ball" was the cry which used to go up in the Caribbean during the 1960s. Well, the 'Turbanator' is a bit of a killer, too. Batting bravely without a helmet to the lightning-fast Harbhajan and whirling at every spitting delivery like a windmill, Schiferli amazingly plays too soon at a searing top-spinner. There is a sickening crunch as the Flying Dutchman gets well and truly poleaxed. There is a five minute delay as
    a) The Dutch all-rounder finds his feet again
    and
    b) Harbhajan finds his tooth to keep as a trophy. "I'm opening with Srinath next game, eh, skip?"


    Well remembered, Rich
